Re: Lock up

Zoom failure suggests zoom motor stalled - no repair Un able to take photos- main circuit failure. Checxk all the ovoise things Battery state- is it goog and delivering full power. Have you set it to the Photo mode or is it stuck in some other function. Get hold the the manual and do a thorough check of all functions. There is usually a FULL manual in PDF format on the supplied CD.

P err when turning on camera 950 coolpix

Hi Patricia,
The link is to the manual for your camera in case you lost yours. I checked the error messages listed and there is nothing shown. However, your camera has three exposure modes (see page 18 in the manual). You will notice that the Program Mode is identified as the "P" mode as it is on all digital cameras. The message may be telling you that there is something wrong with that mode of operation. For an experiment, change your camera's exposure mode to A or S and see if it functions correctly. If that solves the problem your camera will be usable. If it does not, I would normally recommend that you send it to Nikon for service, however you have a very old obsolete model and it will probably cost you more to have it repaired then it will to buy a new camera. The prices have come way down for allot better equipment since you bought your 950. Good luck.

Why does the zoom lock up when I'm recording video?

Because it's supposed to. From page 46 of this manual: "Once movie recording begins, optical zoom cannot be adjusted."

I have a nikon coolpix s3000 is 12 megapixels 4x wide zoom and 2.7 inch lcd-zoom was out-not kept in case-dropped on carpet on cruise ship maybe about 3 feet-get lens error-screen comes on but...

Your photos will not be affected by this fault. Just take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to the computer.

Unfortunately the camera will probably need an expensive repair, or if that isn't economic, replacement.
